Congratulations!  You've reached the website of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association, with churches in 31 cities of southern Los Angeles County.  Welcome!  We exist to Resource, Assist, Coach, and Equip the leadership of local churches, empowering them to make disciples and launch new churches and ministries.  We are here to empower our pastors and church leaders to run their RACE--Resource, Assist, Coach, and Equip!


40 Days of Prayer for the Pastors, Churches, Cities, and Requests of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association.  See Prayer Resources above for full lists and definition of "SIG Alert."

Day 30 – 1 Peter 2.5: You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

  1. Pray that we will use the wonderful privilege we have to intercede as priests for others before God, and to make known to them His love and His will.
  2. Pray for Iglesia Eben-Ezer of Long Beach, their pastor Rev. Jose Carranza, his wife Mirtha and their family, their church leaders, and congregation.
  3. Pray for Iglesia Pacto de Gracias, their pastor Rev. Francisco Montoya, his wife Marta and family, their church leaders, and congregation.
  4. Pray for the city of Paramount, their elected and appointed officials, their citizens, and for God’s will to be done in that city.
  5. Pray that the marriages of the members of our churches, and of their children, will be strong enough by the power of the Holy Spirit to resist divorce and abuse, and that these marriages will be full of truth, love, joy, faith, prayer, godly obedience, the importance of people to God, success (the accomplishment through problem-solving and momentum-building of God’s goals for them, failure (absolutely necessary but never fatal, as we need to learn what doesn’t work as well as what does).  Pray that our association will produce rapidly multiplying congregations for all ethnic groups in the 30+ cities of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association area.

Beloved, we must win souls; we cannot live and see men damned.  –Charles Spurgeon

Daily frame me more and more into the likeness of Thy Son Jesus Christ.  –George Washington

People ask me what makes a great skier.  It takes the gift; but besides the gift it takes that availability of the mind which permits total control of all the elements that lead to victory—total composure.  –Jean-Claude Killy

I had no trouble communicating, the players just didn’t like what I had to say.  –Frank Robinson

You can’t stop at every dog that barks or you’ll never get the mail delivered.  –Phog Allen

Today be thankful, and think how rich you are. Your family is priceless, your time is gold, and your health is wealth.  —Unknown

The battles that count aren’t the ones for gold medals. The struggles within yourself – the invisible battles inside all of us – that’s where it’s at.  —Jesse Owens

You can retire from a job, but don’t ever retire from making extremely meaningful contributions in life.  —Stephen Covey

Don’t worry about people stealing an idea.  If it’s original, you will have to ram it down their throats.  —computing pioneer Howard Aiken

The only safe thing is to take a chance.  —Elaine May

In 1789 a young politician named William Wilberforce forfeited his reputation among the London elite to campaign against the British slave trade.  He introduced an abolitionist bill every year for twenty years with little success.  When depression, stress and sickness threatened to shorten his life, he finally took a break.  After his respite Wilberforce worked on a creative political strategy that finally slid the bill through the House of Commons.

The best kind of giving is when it’s part of your strategic model and not simply an investment in positive PR.  (Galatians 2:10)

Soak your shield before battle.  Ephesians 6:16.  Henry Kissinger once said, “There cannot be a crisis today; my schedule is already full.”  But what if there had been one?
